Robert E. Coleman writes that he once “heard a missionary tell about a boy who appeared at a mission hospital in Kenya with a gaping wound in his foot. He had been accidentally injured while cutting grass far out in the jungle. Part of his heel was cut off. Without waiting to inform anyone of the mishap, he set out across country to find the mission station where he had heard medical help was available. Every time the little foot touched the sandy earth it left a faint trace of blood. The journey was long and difficult, but at last he arrived.

A little while later the boy’s mother appeared. The doctors were surprised that she found the way. There were no well-defined trails, and she had never made the trip before.

"How did you do it?" she was asked. The dear woman, overjoyed to be with her child, replied, "Oh, it was easy. I just followed the blood!" (Robert E. Coleman is Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary).

If will will just follow the blood through the pages of Scripture it will lead us to Freedom! Because by the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ:

We are free from being victims of our upbringing (I Pet. 1:17-18).

We are free from the power of sin so we can live holy lives for God’s glory (Titus 2:11-14).

We are free from our physical body of corruption (Rom. 7:24-25; Col. 2:11; Rom. 8:23).

We are set free from the fear of death (Heb. 2:14).

We have been set free in order that we might live for the one who set us free (2 Cor. 5:14-15).
